Unable to connect to WebDAV server in nautilus

Nautilus 3.6.3

Even though Nautilus is _supposed_ to be able to connect to WebDAV servers, as here:

WebDAV and Secure WebDAV
Based on the HTTP protocol used on the web, WebDAV is sometimes used to share files on a local network and to store files on the internet. If the server you're connecting to supports secure connections, you should choose this option. Secure WebDAV uses strong SSL encryption, so that other users can't see your password.
A typical WebDAV URL looks like this:
http://example.hostname.com/path

Nautilus doesn't recognise http and https servers. Nautilus does recognise dav://, but when I try to connect, I get and error saying Unhandled error message: HTTP Error: Moved Permanently

Hi gnustomp

Have you tried any other tool? I would try to get a connection with cadaver.
You will find out the error in your setup or maybe the correct url or that Nautilus has a bug or ??

Re: Unable to connect to WebDAV server in nautilus

I was having the same problem with the nautilus "connect to server" dialogue while trying to connect to an https webdav share at box.com.

Thanks to this thread I tried davs://dav.box.com/dav and it worked.

Re: Unable to connect to WebDAV server in nautilus

I'd like to double that: I had the same problem that https:// did not work, but replacing it with davs:// did do the job.

Re: Unable to connect to WebDAV server in nautilus

Just for any other people having problems with nautilus and webdav....I found that nautilus does not support 301/302 redirects. But strangely windows explorer.exe, kde dolphin and osx finder.app all support redirects. An example being, if your url is http and redirects to https this means nautilus will not take a dav:// and redirect it to davs:// ...sigh. So when using nautilus make sure you use an address that does not redirect otherwise you will get a Unhandled error message: HTTP Error: Moved Permanently as it doesn't follow the redirect.
